Movie Review: The Black Swan

published: December, 07, 2010 Categories // Arts and Entertainment, Movies

Hot and very cute dancers, is that enough for this movie?

This film was not an unreserved hit with me but it wasn't an abject failure either. On the plus side, the dancing was great and so were the cute dancers. So were the costumes and sets. Nathalie Portman did a great acting job and it was nice to see the cameo by Winona Ryder, who was great. On the minus side, the story was obvious and I had a strong feeling of being manipulated by the director Daniel Aronofsky into liking it and finding it clever, which I didn't. The characters were one dimensio

And while that is all good and peachy keen I have a thought on the matter. Yes world AIDS Day is a good thing..

OK, so in two days, (Wednesday, December 1st) the world will be celebrating World AIDS Day!! YAY!! And while that is all good and peachy keen I have a thought on the matter.

HIV Disclosure & Public Life: Just because I tell people, doesn't mean you can

So I have a bee in my bonnet about something and it had me rather confused I must say. I have this friend, a female friend, whom for the purpose if this post will remain nameless...

...as I have SOME tact and decorum, (something she apparently knows nothing about) who, for reasons she has been unable to explain to me, felt the need to disclose my HIV+ status to some random guy she met in a bar when we were out celebrating a mutual friend's birthday this past Saturday night.So there we were, all having a good time, drinking (tonic water with a lime wedge for me, as I quit drinking 23 days ago), dancing, you know the usual. We had all noticed that said “friend” had been

In which newly minted TV star Bob Leahy says why he doesn’t like World AIDS Day - and why he does.

Reflections on Worlds AIDS Day: Have Lady Gaga, Usher, Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys got it all wrong?

Gawd. Writing a World AIDS Day column for a site that doesn’t take itself too seriously is an effin hard thing to do. Even though this is a solemn day that needs to include memories of the past and, in particular, remembrance of those that didn’t make it, there is also a message to be delivered that some of us are very much alive and kicking. Not only kicking, but finding time every day most days to be downright silly, rude, and/or absurd. It’s hard to balance the two messages. Few do it

Turning 1 year old on World AIDS Day 2010

published: November, 30, 2010 Written by // Brian Finch - Founder Categories // Events, Brian Finch

Where else can you go to find get to know the top advisor for the American National AIDS Strategy to adventures at your local Zombie walk, or one of the first reviews of Priscilla Queen of the Desert?

I’ve been thinking about what I’d write for a date marked by two occasions. The first is “World AIDS Day” and the second, the one-year anniversary of PositiveLite.com. The vision was to be able to offer an alternative to the present online landscape of websites dedicated to the subject of HIV. I wanted a combination of content that ranged from complete entertainment and fluff to more serious topical subjects. The goal and sometimes the challenge is to offer concise information that is

For those of us for whom everyday is WORLD AIDS DAY, don't we take the day off ?

For those of us for whom everyday is WORLD AIDS DAY, don't we take the day off ?Here's my proposed agenda for that day9:30-10 AM -Awake at leisure 10- 12 - Have a lovely breakfast of fresh squeezed orange juice ( champagne optional ), fresh warm croissants, scrambled eggs and other delicacies to your liking while reading the latest issue of Vogue magazine (or other equally vacuous reading material.

Very soon there’ll be a reason for the gay community in Pune and Mumbai to rejoice, as specially modified gay condoms will be launched in the two cities by the first week of January, 2011

From the land of the Kamasutra comes a condom for gay/MSM/ bisexual men who want a condom with extra lube and that is made for them versus everyone. What a novel idea!. The article below is from The Pune Mirror, written by Vishakha Sharma. Very soon there’ll be a reason for the gay community in Pune and Mumbai to rejoice, as specially modified gay condoms will be launched in the two cities by the first week of January, 2011.  This new condom will be more durable and lubricated.

OHTN and CATIE give PositiveLite.com the nod

I can’t think of much better news to kick off World AIDS Week than to hear that CATIE is now collaborating with PositiveLite in a similar fashion to what the OHTN announced that they would be doing earlier this month. You can read CATIE’s inaugural post here.   I'm a big fan of both these organizations. I really think this is a win-win situation. Or perhaps that should be a win-win-win situation, as three parties are involved. For PositiveLite it means additional quality content
